Climb the slabby wall left of Klute, past several poor breaks to some large blocks. Continue straight via cracks and flakes to a resting place below a short steep groove. From here you could simply top out on the right, but don't; fix some gear and pull strenuously into the groove to sinker holds and an easy finish.

jsmcfarland 5 Aug Lead O/S Great route. Some quite hard moves lower down as well as the relentless upper groove. Good idea taking tons of little cams. Super happy to get this clean, I was *so* pumped the whole way through the groove. Climbing lots of overhangs has paid off!

subdir 27 May 2nd dog Really good route, well protected but final groove is overhanging and you just need to go - was tempted by a jug on the right (possible escape) but bad idea - best to go stick to the groove, the jugs are there - well done Tom!
